Today, the Red Sox beat the Phillies 8-3, and are now 24-21 on the year. They had a 5-2 week this week, tying the Yankees 1-1, sweeping the Twins 2-0, and beating the Phillies 2-1. Kevin Youkilis (right) is our Player of the Week, he had 4 home runs and 10 RBIs over the course of the week and is now .322/9/27 on the season as he is doing quite well, batting .390 in May! Jacoby Ellsbury is finally back in the lineup, he went 1-5 with 2 RBIs today, along with a great catch in center field. Adrian Beltre is coming strong, he is now .325/3/26 as he has been fantastic. Tim Wakefield (1-2/4.44/24) and Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-1/5.76/24) each threw 8 shutout innings on back-to-back days. Next week the Sox play the Tampa Bay Rays in a 3-game series in Tampa, then they go back to Fenway and play the Royals in a 4-game series, they need a day off sooner or later. The Red Sox are looking good at 3 games above .500, I'm loving it!
